Dutch pub is back

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS - Kaylee Martin

FOL­LOW­ING month-long ren­o­va­tions, the Dutch Trad­ing Co has re­opened its doors and plans to bring a fresh ap­proach to en­ter­tain­ment on Thurs­day nights.

In the hus­tle and bus­tle of Vic­to­ria Park’s cafe strip, the Dutch Trad­ing Co of­fers a se­lec­tion of craft beer and Dutch in­flu­enced meals.

Man­ager of the venue Joel Beresford said they de­cided to launch live mu­sic nights be­cause the en­ter­tain­ment would com­ple­ment the ex­ist­ing at­mos­phere.

“In pre­vi­ous in­car­na­tions, this venue has had a his­tory of be­ing a hub for the live mu­sic scene, some­thing that is lack­ing in this area,” Mr Beresford said.

“We thought to re­vive live mu­sic here to get the com­mu­nity ex­cited again, and to come out and ex­pe­ri­ence the amaz­ing at­mos­phere only live mu­sic can cre­ate.”

Mr Beresford hoped the live mu­sic nights would help the Vic­to­ria Park strip come alive.

“The tal­ented mu­si­cians will rein­vig­o­rate in­ter­est down our end of the Vic Park strip and make it a goto place for lo­cals and at­tract new vis­i­tors to the area,” he said.

“I love the po­ten­tial the strip has to be­come Perth’s

d448555 most vi­brant scene for nightlife and day tripping.”

Acous­tic duo Beth & Col launched the new Thurs­day night en­ter­tain­ment last week.

Singer Beth Kuw­ertz said it was fan­tas­tic to see an­other venue along the Vic­to­ria Park strip sup­port lo­cal mu­si­cians and the in­dus­try.

“Mu­sic plays a sig­nif­i­cant cul­tural and so­cial role in our lives and we think it’s im­por­tant that venues like this con­tinue to broaden the live mu­sic scene,” she said.

The Dutch Trad­ing Co on Albany High­way will fea­ture live mu­sic acts ev­ery Thurs­day from 6-9pm.
